Figure 8 Red

This modern blend of Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon is classic British Columbia. The nose has a combination of red plums, cherry, red currant, violet, and savoury tobacco and dried herbal notes with some complex hints of marzipan and dark chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, fresh and juicy as well as soft and round with red berry fruits like raspberry and cherry, some toasty caramel and vanilla along with black pepper and toasted nuts. Try with pan seared duck breast with a red wine and blueberry reduction.
